Features

notes
More commonly known as Pampas, Cortaderia selloana Silver Comet is a large ornamental grass, which forms a tuft of rough-edged leaves, bearing silvery white flower panicles in summer. These plumes dance above the plant creating movement and texture; a striking exclamation point in any garden. This variety is noted for its interesting, evergreen foliage which has white striations giving the plant a metallic appearance. 
Insights

The flowers can be cut and dried and are very popular for flower arranging, however, if left on the plant, they create an architectural effect in the garden, particularly fetching when brushed with frost in winter.
